Tag Tuesday Moon Dreams

The latest Tag Tuesday challenge over at Louise's Kard Krazy blog is to use a Moon on our tags.  Since I had lots of Halloween stuff on my desk already, I immediately thought of this sweet little image, which definitely does *not* have to be a Halloween image, even though it is part of a set called Trick or Treat by Oxford Impressions. (Actually, there are a few more very versatile stamps in that set, but I digress....).  I called my tag "Moon Dreams" as a play on moonbeams, because this particular moon looks so delighted to have this wee one for company.

For the tag, I spritzed the background with Glimmer Mists, delightfully named "Moonlight," "Blue Skies," and "Dragonfly."  I did some masking, too, but that got completely covered up, LOL!  Next came some stars heat embossed in silver. I tore some strips of vintage sheet music, applied some blue and silver metallic rub-on, and layered them with some puffy "clouds" that I made from the baby wipes I used to dab the Glimmers.  I stamped the little girl with her happy moon, colored them with Copics, and popped them up on top. The little border is from Pink Paislee's Parisian Anthology, and the letters are Cosmo Cricket.

Check out Louise's beautiful creation, as well as all the fab tags filling up Mr. Linky over at Kard Krazy.  This is a fun challenge, that can be taken in the Halloween direction or not, depending on your preferences.  Hope you'll have time to play. :)

Tomorrow I am going to post my very first ever, and long overdue, BLOG CANDY!!! Stay tuned..... :)

I love your tag. The blue is a nice change and I think you have inspired me to get my 'blue' things out. The Moon is a godsend to me, as when I can't sleep, I love to admire her through my window.
